Parents of Students in Year 6 in 2018

The Heights SchoolNews & Events

Is your son or daughter gifted?

The Ignite Program is a selective entry program for gifted students entering Year 8 at The Heights School. Within the Ignite program there are opportunities for students to be accelerated, and participate in a range of enrichment activities to extend and stimulate their adept minds. They study, and form friendships with other like-minded peers, in a caring and nurturing environment.

We continue to be one of the leading schools across the Northern Region, with outstanding SACE results. In 2016 our students achieved the highest SACE scores across the Northern Region, and we continued these great results last year. In 2017, 20% of our Stage 2 students received an ATAR score of over 80. 11% of these students scored above 90, with our highest achieving an ATAR score of 98.8.
If you believe your child would thrive and benefit from the Ignite program, please complete an expression of interest form for your child to sit the ACER test conducted at The Heights School.

The assessment day is Saturday 23rd February 2019.

Expression of Interest Forms are now available online via the following link: http://www.theheights.sa.edu.au/index.php/programs/ignite

Additional enquiries can be directed to Michelle Crush (Ignite Services) at The Heights School on 82636244
or via email: Michelle.Crush23@schools.sa.edu.au

Please note that students can only sit the test once.
If a student sits for the assessment then he/she cannot re-sit the test the following year so we strongly recommend only sitting the test as a Year 7 student.
